Start the walk by heading along the Waterloo minor road which passes some attractive cottages and has fine views across Broadford Bay, this is a pleasant route following the coast, the peninsula is rocky, but on the shore you will find firm grass interspersed with hundreds of tiny pools, offering excellent bird-watching.

Follow the waymarked sign the path immediately turns right, but follow strait on along the coast ahead, this is fairly easy walking, sometimes on slabs of rock on the shore but mostly on firm grass just above, here you will find countless small pools of water in the short grass, but the grass between is dry, after about kilometre, the coast swings to the right; follow it around an inlet, here you will find many dykes of rock running out to sea.

 At the end of the peninsula the green mound of Eilean na Ruadhaich this is accessible at low tides, you can see Kyle of Lochalsh and the Skye Bridge, make sure you have the tide times with you, this is a great place for scenery and wildlife, such as birdwatching, spotting dolphins in the bay and otters in the water near the coast, you return by the same route, being aware of the change in the tide.
